Creation vs. Evolution

Creation

  • Evolutionary theory rests on precepts set out by old, obsolete book written over a hundred years ago
  • Scientifically corroborated by numerous peer-reviewed Facebook posts
  • Banana flawlessly designed for use as fake phone
  • Bible verses about molecular mutation and generational metamorphosis in allele frequencies clearly allegorical
  • Nine electoral votes in Alabama
  • Results of natural selection experiments have only been reproduced a few thousand times in a laboratory
  • Archaeopteryx way too awesome to have evolved into shitty birds of today
  • Far easier to understand than evolution


Evolution

  • Personal feud with God
  • Saw frog evolve from pollywog
  • Distinct morphological similarities between ancient Neanderthal and Trent
  • Nice to think we actually distantly related to family dog
  • Want to see how much more upright next figure in evolutionary chart will be standing
  • That one Star Trek: Voyager episode where helmsman Tom Paris goes through rapid evolution
  • Dazzling oratorical genius of Clarence Darrow
  • Universe was created out of nothing billions of years ago, which you’ll just have to trust us on

Your a closeminded fool !

I know your are but what am I?
Seriously? If you disregard all evidence then your close-minded.
And I said 3 groups.

Creation ex nihilio is illogical. Once you believe Hashem created the world from nothing creating a 'primordial atom' makes no more sense than creating a complete universe as we see it.

I find it disgusting that someone would purposely start a thread just to reach popcorn status.

But I didn't. I'm hopeful that there can be some honest discussion. So far there has been. I won't avoid immaturity if someone starts it (see my previous post) but I'm curious to see where this goes. If people like jj and kangaroo are the main participants it can remain civil.

A few years ago i read the book "the eye of the needle" it was put out by aish hatorah i don't remember who wrote it but in there there was some way they made it make sense that the beginning of creation was about 15 billion years ago in the way we look at time or something like that i don't really remember how it worked out exactly. If someone has more info on it and can chime in it would help
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Judaism encourages it
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

There's a Harvard physicist who wrote a book like that but it used bad and wrong science. He got blasted for it. I'll look tomorrow.

Is it a given that everyone that believes in Judaism also believes we are to (insert your word of choice) to understand why G-d does things?

For the record I reject some of the premises which some posters say are proven without backing them up.

So you do understand why G-d does things?
